I'm back already with another challenge card! A couple of different blogs are hosting Father's Day challenges right now. I had already made the Father's Day cards for my dad and father-in-law (post coming after Father's Day, naturally) and didn't want to enter that card into any challenges because I pretty much scraplifted it from one I found online. But, how to enter the challenge, then? Then I realized that, although my husband will never in a million years admit to being Sophie's adopted dad, I view him that way and I'm sure there are lots of people out there that would like some acknowledgement on Mother's/Father's day for taking care of their animals. I swear sometimes it's just as hard as having a kid.
That being said, here is Sophie's Father's Day card. She didn't really help besides being the model for the card and spending a lot of time sniffing the patterned paper stack, but that's ok. The patterned paper here is from the DCWV Pet Stack- I just got it at a garage sale last week for $3! The hearts are glittery, although you can't really tell from the picture. Then I cut the dog from Four Legged Friends. It's kind of a weird cut- the main layer is supposed to show two feet, the scarf, the nose and the eye. But I wanted the feet tan and the nose black, so I cut the whole thing out in tan, and just used a Sharpie to color in the nose area. I also used a red Sharpie for the smile. Then I cut the body layer in gray and the head layer in the same tan. The scarf is a patterned paper scrap- it's not it's own cut, so I traced it by hand and just cut it with scissors. No use wasting that much paper to cut the entire dog again on the Cricut. Then I added the googly eye and she was done!
For a final touch, I added the brown rick-rack (is that how it's spelled?) and the button from my stash.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
